"How does a man go from interviewing superstar athletes to planning the elementary school talent show? Or more specifically, how does he survive it? There is both insight and laughter in Murphy's answer, making this book entertaining for both fathers and mothers alike." -"BookPage"
After nineteen years as a writer for "Sports Illustrated," Austin Murphy should have had it made. Instead, he'd had it with life as an absentee husband and father. So he decided to trade it in for a new life: that of his wife, Laura.
Alas, the man charged with preparing three nutritious meals a day had never mastered his own outdoor grill. And that was just the beginning. Sublimely ignorant of everything from grocery shopping to housecleaning to the need to trim his children's nails more than, say, semiannually, Murphy embarks on his journey like Shackleton taking on the Southern Ocean: spectacularly ill-equipped to survive it.
Lively, poignant, yet laugh-out-loud funny, "How Tough Could It Be?" is a heartwarming account of one man's decision to reorder his life around things that really matter, and his adventures (and misadventures) along the way.
